We all want the best of focus and energy without damaging our health. That’s why we’re turning to the natural nootropics. When used together, these nootropic stacks provide a huge punch for the right price.
The best nootropics have been around for a long time. We've all had the coffee jolt. The caffeine in the coffee (and chocolate) is a nootropic, or stimulant, that has been used for thousands of years. Many of the stacks I’m going to tell you about here can be found in food, herbs, and drinks.
What Nootropics Mean To Your Health
We don’t want to blow our health for a short term burst of mind power. What’s the good of juicing it up now, getting the good grades, if we aren't around to use it.
That’s why you won’t see energy drinks or untested products here. Remember, young adults have killed themselves using too much of a good thing. There is such a thing as nootropic side effects, and we don’t want you to get them. That’s why we recommend using these as directed and talking to a doctor to see if they will work for you safely.
In the long-term, nootropics can boost your brain power, give you energy, and improve your focus. They don’t give you false smarts, but actually increase your ability to learn and think. That’s a good thing.
Think Fast, Think Hard, Sleep Well
Just because you want to study hard, doesn’t mean you want to stay up all night. Getting a good night sleep before the test or the presentation is important. You need the boost now and the sleep later to be the best. Here’s what we recommend:
This 4 punch of natural chemicals delivers you the balance between energy, focus, long-term retention, and still lets you get a good night sleep.
Choline: The Pseudo-Vitamin That’s Our Friend
The choline is a natural nootropic, generally considered one of the B Vitamins. The main benefit includes increased mental clarity, memory improvements, and an overall boost in optimal cognitive functioning. Basically, you think clear thoughts, remember what you study, and you can do it quick.
But, choline isn't one of those nootropics that act on its own. You see, this vitamin is one of the pre-cursors that provides the building materials for the Piracetam. Without the choline, you can suffer headaches, find the rest of the nootropics have little to no effect, and maybe even feel tired and drained.
Since choline is relatively non-toxic, people can take up to about 10g per day without problems. Generally, after that, people start to smelly fishy and sweat more. Going much beyond that and you risk vomiting and dizziness.
We’re recommending 3g of choline 3 times per day. That way, you stay below the problem threshold and get the best benefit. As a bonus, studies show that at about 7g per day, you can lower your blood pressure!
Caffeine is a natural stimulant. It has been around as long as we’ve had the coffee bean!
But, what about the jitters, and caffeine headache? Well, when combined with the choline and L-Theanine, you don’t get those negative side effects!
Caffeine has been shown in studies to help all sorts of health issues. Not only does it help you stay awake, it can help reduce depression, balance mood hormones, and, in some studies, help avoid diseases like diabetes.
I know you aren’t drinking the Joe for its health benefits, we want to stay awake!
That’s why about 100mg of caffeine every couple of hours when studying really help you focus and stay awake.
L-Theanine: The Proteinogenic Amino Acid With A Huge Punch
Starting in Japan, theanine made its way around the world to become one of the most popular and safe energy and focus boosting nootropic drugs. It’s very common in Japan to see high school and college student regularly using this supplement.
This little chemical gives green tea it’s bite and provides the umami flavoring in many dishes. We actually seek out this flavor because we know it’s so good for us!
Theanine is known for its ability to reduce mental and physical stress, improve cognition, and boost mood and cognitive performance in a synergistic manner with caffeine. It crosses into the brain and makes your neurons fire faster.
This isn’t a normal stimulant, however. It actually reduces the stress on your brain by making it work more efficiently. It balances the jittery effects of other stimulants.
Basically, L-Theanine is one of the most perfect nootropics out there, especially if you want a balance of focus, energy, and mental retention. Never be without it!
Don’t Forget the Piracetam
Well, you won’t if you actually take it! Piracetam works by controlling how much neurotransmitter production occurs in the brain. It increases the amount of acetylcholine and glutamate in the brain – meaning you can think, learn, remember and get stuff done!
One of the best benefits: it rarely has any side effects! And even those can be relieved with the L-Theanine.
Piracetam is the introduction to nootropic stacks you are looking for, and is in fact, the first nootropic. It’s also one of the best-selling and most reliable.
This is one of those chemicals where less really is more. 1g 3x per day is really what works best. Taking more than this, even in the short term leads to headaches and nausea. You can’t take a test if you vomit all over it.
When you take nootropics, you stack the ones that give you fast focus and energy with ones that eliminate the side effects and provide support. That’s why this blend really works!
With the fast jolt of caffeine, you get the energy, the choline and theanine give you balance, support, and focus, and the Piracetam provide the glue that holds them all together and fills in the gaps with energy and balance.
Remember, take as directed. Nootropics help you focus and give you energy, while letting you get a good night sleep. Too much and you’ll be a jittery mess! Here’s to focus and energy and acing the test!
